Persona 3 Reload: Bunkichi Social Link Guide

Persona 3 Reload: Kenji Social Link Guide

Persona 3 Reload is filled to the brim with some of the most iconic Social Links in the franchise. Because this game will be most player’s first experience with them, they mad have some difficulties. Most social link conversations from Persona 3 in particular would have a single correct choice alongside two answers that would reward no points. Not getting enough points in a Social Link conversation can result in you wasting days of time trying to regain said points. If you don’t want to fall down this time wasting cycle, here are the answers for the Bunkichi Social Link in Persona 3 Reload.
